PHILADELPHIA – the Ride-hailing giant Uber is blaming a computer glitch for the transshipment of a “handful” of customers, including a Philadelphia woman whose bank blocked in an attempt to cost her more than $ 28,000 for a ride.

Philly.com says the woman, for the first time said they got an email from Uber warning that its financial information was hacked. Six days later, Uber sent another e-mail told her that it was wrong, and that Uber’s engineering team was aware of the error and fixing it.
